IFA Welcomes Reports of Progress on Food and Live Exports Post-Brexit
IFA President Tim Cullinan said reports that progress had been made on food and live animal exports going through the UK post-Brexit was encouraging.
“It is crucial that there are no barriers to trade or additional costs arising from Britain’s exit from the EU,” he said.
“Live animal exports are particularly important for Irish farmers to put more competition into our beef sector,” he said.
“While we have yet to see the precise details of what is proposed, and it is yet to be approved by Member States, the news coming from the talks is encouraging,” he said.
